The Celeb Outfits You’re Going to Want to See from the Met Gala 2019

From the downright bizarre to the beautiful   Although many might just think 1st of May is the start of a new month, this date actually marks one of the most significant events in the fashion industry. Of course, here, we’re referring to the renowned Met Gala. An evening where fashion designers, artists, models, musicians and actors make some jaw-dropping entrances onto the red carpet. The gala is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and celebrates the revealing of the fashion institute’s blockbuster exhibition. Each year the Met Gala is centred around the theme of the latest exhibition, with previous events focusing on China: Through the Looking Glass, Punk: Chaos to Couture, and this year’s exhibition theme being Camp: Notes on Fashion. As you can imagine, the event produced some memorable and creative fashion statements, so let’s take a dive into the celeb outfits you really don’t want to miss out on seeing.   First up on our list is Cardi B, because it would be rude not to make her number 1 with this Thom Browne number. Cardi’s oxblood gown boasted over ten feet of tulle and silk and a whopping 3,000 burned and dyed feathers. Impressive and probably, pretty heavy. Emily Ratajkowski graced the red carpet an ethereal vision, with wings to match. Wearing Dunda, she channelled a bold and brave interpretation of camp queen, Cher. We didn’t think Emily could get any more dreamy, but here we are, proven very wrong. Next up on our list is Naomi Campbell, who sported a stunning violent Valentino gown and feather cape. Oh, and being the smart woman she...

Welcome to the World of Fashion Recruitment

The Fashion Industryis formally known as the globalized sector that works to meet the demand for apparel and dictates the trends for what should be worn. However, the majority of us mainly acknowledged for its glitz, glam, bold personalities, overflowing creativity and its notorious reputation to be hard to break into.

Fashion recruitment agencies are here to help you secure you your dream career within the fast-paced, exciting and glamorous world of the fashion industry.

Thousands of candidates are embarking on their own job search, hungry to get their foot in the door. So, what is it really like to recruit for some of the biggest fashion brands and photographic agents in the world? Lantern’s creator and all-round fashion recruitment guru, Matti Cooke, reveals that “fashion is a serious business and recruiting for it involves singling out the highest calibre candidates from the big pool of people who have a ‘passion for fashion’. Recruiting Fashion Shoot Producers and Art Directors specifically is a lovely experience as it’s a small world and you get to know people really well. I’ve become very close to some of my clients and candidates and like to catch up with them from time to time to make sure they’re happy (and to catch up on gossip!) I always make time for potential candidates who approach me and try to help them with advice or CV tips as it feels good to give something and add value.”...

Playful photographs of crazy coincidences!

“Over-familiarity with our surroundings can blind us, so trying to keep fresh eyes and an open mind always helps, it’s a lesson anyone trapped in a place, job, or situation they find boring can learn from.”   Pau Buscato picked up a camera in 2010 and very soon quit his 9-5 job to pursue his photography career. His discipline, patience and determination to get the perfectly crazy shot is impressive, sometimes spending 7 hours and in the same location and taking hundreds of attempts. It pays off for the pure joy for the photographer to capture it and also the audience for the butterflies when they experience and understand the picture. Click here for the full article in Vice.
